                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I feel like a fish out of water, but what the heck, here's something for you.
The inception stats of The Paper Marios:

ST - 11,11,12,12,14
CN - 6,6,13,15,21
SZ - 11,11,11,15,16
WT - 5,5,15,17,21

Interesting, huh?

         Sushie, your fishy Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KALTOS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TWINK win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TWINK 
beat FERGUS HILL and FERGUS HILL lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, KALTOS may be getting bland, as SUSHIE stays top dog in 
the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, KALTOS?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  KALTOS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
THE MIDDLE WAY 5 the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was PAPER MARIO.  Ha ha ha ha!  FERGUS HILL was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the KALTOS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide
